How can alcohol kill you?
Many deaths involving alcohol were due to detrimental effects of consuming vast amounts of alcohol over long periods of time, such as breast cancer, liver disease, and heart disease. To name a few. Excessive consumption can lead to muscle atrophy which is especially dangerous to the heart. As heart muscles shrink and weaken, the heart tissue swells, and it becomes very difficult for the organ to properly pump blood throughout the body.
Regular over consumption of alcohol also frequently results in health problems related to the esophagus and stomach, including erosion of the esophagus, which can be very painful, as well as bleeding of the esophagus and stomach. Additionally, people who drink too much tend to have compromised immune systems, leaving them vulnerable to a number of illnesses and infections.
